You know business. We know talent.

We also know that on average a business spends $4,129 and 42 days to find a new employee. Additionally, employers spend an extraordinary amount of money training staff; According to Forbes 2014 Corporate Learning Factbook, US spending in 2013 on corporate training exceeded $70 Billion in the US.
